Exceptional Rug Cleaning Service in Wormley and Turnford
We dust every rug before hand-washing. You will be amazed to find how much fine dirt is accumulated in the rug pile/foundation. We use a 6-inch rug-bath for submerging/soaking rugs for some time. The water is drained- the rug is removed from the bath – it is hand-washed with safe special shampoo and brush. The rug is flipped – front to back & the hand-washing process is repeated. The rug is rinsed thoroughly – removing all shampoo (this is determined by taking pH readings of the water leaving the washing pit). Water is carefully extracted from the rug and hung to dry in a temperature-controlled setting. We use rug cleaning products approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute for residential cleaning, which is safe for children, pets, and the environment.
